Re: Concerned that my blog has been added to your archive
"It's quite strange that you would refer to the U.S. District Court opinions and orders in the cases of Parker v. Google  (affirmed on appeal) and Field v. Google as on line personal diaries"
I didn't, you did, nice try btw!, but it doesn't apply here at all; I'll get to that later.
"It's also quite baffling that in a discussion about the fair use provisions of Section 107 of USC Title 17, you would quote the completely irrelevant (to a determination of fair use) Section 108."
Here's the WHOLE of section 107:
§ 107 . Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
next is section 108 (the info I posted)
§ 108 . Limitations on exclusive rights: Reproduction by libraries and archives, the section YOU considered to be
"completely irrelevant"? Really???
Now back to your links and "References". First and most important to note is this website is NOT a search engine, will NOT be legally argued as one, thus making your references completely irrelevant.
"In those cases, Google's cache was found to be a fair use. Thus, what the Internet Archive does is very clearly absolutely legal under the "fair use" provisions of U.S. copyright law. There is no uncertainty about this - the legal cases involving the Google cache have already provided the correct answer."
Google is T E M P O R A R Y, WHEREAS the IA actually makes permanent EXACT replacement copies of the original and serves them up to the public without express permission or consent.
Can you spot the difference yet????? Or ...
